Off Topic: Marine Fuel Cells

(thought I would blog about some small topics more often. Topics that come up during this Westsail design/build process, but are not neccesarily directly related to the Westsail. Sort of a "thought of the day" posts) This was forwarded to me by my wife. Maxpower is a French company that makes marine fuel cells. A hot topic in this day of global warming and high oil prices, fuel cells generate electricity via an electrochemical process instead of electro-mechanical (i.e. conventional alternator/generator devices). This particular range fuel cells can directly replace conventional batteries and/or be used to charge a conventional battery system. These fuel cells run on methanol and have very few moving parts.
